What inspires you?

I know a lot of scrapbookers out there are like me in that you see inspiration everywhere you look. But there are those things, too, that just make you go a little silly inside that not only inspire you but make you feel good. Of course nothing can make me feel as incredible as my son does, and I also have a well-known affinity for techie gadgets and cool graphic software and all things Apple. Oh, and Chocolate Therapy ice cream from Ben & Jerry's also makes me a little swoony.

For me though, an awesome red purse, handbag, tote, whatever, just stops me in my tracks. So today, I was checking something out at work (all work-related believe it or not) and I happened upon this red Furla Dharma shopper bag. I'm still thinking about it and it's been hours. What the heck is wrong with me? Now, I'll never buy it because I'm too cheap to fork over $200 for it. The guilt would kill me. I don't think of myself as being materialistic AT ALL but don't we all have something like that? Right? You do, don't you? (Please say you do so I don't feel like a dork.)

Speaking of inspiration, check out Stacy Julian's blog from yesterday. Scroll to the bottom. :)

Have a good one!

I have a "thing" for cool, expensive furniture--modern style, sleek lines--but I NEVER buy any of it...can't afford it, wouldn't match my house (farmhouse style, big front porch, animals and kids everywhere...). The handbag is VERY cool...that may be something you could save up for a little at a time, and not feel guilty about it...?

Really Really nice bag. My fingers are crossed it goes on sale for at least half price!

Hey, Maelynn!
Umm, yeah! That red purse is adorable and I don't blame you at all for drooling over it. I wouldn't buy it either at that price tag, but I would certainly be stalking it for a clearance tag. Tee hee!!! LOVE to find a total bargain on clearance. Makes me happy.

I've been on the lookout for a spiffy red purse for a long while now, but I haven't been lucky enough to find one on sale. (yet)
